Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Tribology is the 'science and technology of interacting surfaces in relative motion'. This book includes the research and application of principles of friction, wear and lubrication, and aims to provide the fundamentals and advances in tribology for modern industry. The book covers tribology with special emphasis on surface topography; wear of materials and lubrication, and includes dedicated coverage on the fundamentals of micro and nanotribology. The last two chapters of the book present the advances currently being experienced in tribology in manufacturing and bio and medical tribology, respectively. This book will serve as a useful reference for academics, tribology and materials researchers, mechanical, physics and materials engineers, and professionals in related industries with tribology. The Editor: J. Paulo Davim received his PhD in Mechanical Engineering from the University of Porto in 1997 and the Aggregation from the University of Coimbra in 2005. Currently, he is Aggregate Professor in the Department of Mechanical Engineering of the University of Aveiro and Head of MACTRIB - Machining and Tribology Research Group. He has more than 24 years of teaching and research experience in machining, tribology and manufacturing processes. He is the Editor of four international journals, and also guest editor, editorial board member, reviewer and scientific advisor for many international journals and conferences. He has also published more than 300 articles in SCI journals (h-index 15) and conferences. The Contributors: P. Sahoo, Jadavpur University, India; A.E Jimenez and M.D Bermudez, Universidad Politecnica de Cartagena, Spain; L. Burstein, Technion - IIT, Haifa, Israel; K. Mylvaganam and L.C. Zhang, University of New South Wales, Australia, M.J. Jackson, Purdue University, USA; J.S. Morrell, Y12 National Security Complex, USA; S.Affatato and F. Traina, Istituto Ortopedico Rizzoli, Italy. Contents: Surface Topography; Friction and wear; Lubrication and roughness; Micro/nano tribology; Tribology in manufacturing; Bio and medical tribology.

Book News Annotation:

Engineers in other fields are introduced to fundamentals of the science that deals with interaction between surfaces, including friction, wear, and lubrication. It can be used as a textbook at the graduate or advanced undergraduate level, or as a reference for academics or professionals. It covers surface topography, friction and wear, lubrication and its relation to roughness, microscale and nanoscale aspects, tribology in manufacturing, and biological and medical tribology.
